HP refreshed its lineup of workstation-grade ZBook Studio laptops with the new Coffee Lake-H processors from Intel. However, among the refreshes was the new HP ZBook Studio x360 G5; which packs the power of the ZBook series into a convertible package.
As the name implies, the ZBook Studio x360 G5 can turn from a standard laptop into a tablet thanks to its folding hinge. The screen is a 4K DreamColor touch panel with 100% AdobeRGB colour coverage with 600nits of brightness support.
It can be configured with the Intel 8th Gen quad-core Core i5, hexa-core Core i7 or a Xeon E3 processor. Graphics will be handled via a Quadro 1000, and it can handle up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM (ECC RAM for the Xeon) with either 5TB of local SSD storage or 4TB of NVME SSDs. As it is a touchscreen, it also has support for the Wacom AES pen.
Also present in the announcement is the ZBook Studio G5, which is the same notebook without the folding hinge; it also loses the touchscreen and Wacom AES pen support. Despite this, supports more local storage – up to 6TB.
Pricing for the ZBook Studio 360 G5 starts from US$1,499 (RM 5,799) while the ZBook Studio G5 will have a base price of US$1,299(RM 5,025).
